Based on anthropological research conducted over a number of years on the Indonesian island of Flores, this is the first published account of a people called Keo. Keo society reveals a pervasive pairing of villages, clans, and other groups. The book explores this dualistic social organization in relation to marriage, reciprocity, and sacrificial ritual. In doing so, it offers important insights into issues of kinship and social inequality.
